SOURCE: vibration during spin cycle

Unless your front loader is set firmly on concrete and leveled to perfection, the force of a heavy wash load spinning in excess of 1000rpm will create a bit of vibration and noise.A firm footing is your best defense against to much movement.
Also due to the earlier movements during the spin cycle, the shocks that are used to dampen the spin cycle might have been broken or damaged.
If the problem persists inspite of proper levelling, please do check for the shocks or might have them replaced them for good.

SOURCE: During the spin cycle the washer will vibrate and move around. Happens on large and small loads.

Hi,
Try these

  1. Balance the load
  2. Level the machine
  3. Inspect the water pump for a blockage
  4. Inspect the coupling
  5. Inspect the transmission
  6. Adjust the drive belt tension
  7. Check the motor bearings
  8. Check the drum brakes
please rate my suggestion

SOURCE: washer vibrates terribly loud on high speed spin

Either bad motor, motor bearing, tub bearing or idler pulley (also broken motor mount). Unplug unit. Spin tub by hand. Try and feel if spins freely. If direct drive unit (no belts). Most likely tub bearing or motor. Remove rear panel. Inspect for damage (broken mounting parts). Turn tub by hand. Look for malfunction.

SOURCE: vibration on second floor laundry

Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

IF THIS IS A BRAND NEW INSTALLATION - be sure you hav removed the basket shipping pins (4) that secure the tub during shipping.

SHAKES and VIBRATES - LG Front-loader shakes and vibrates terribly during the spin cycle. It is pounding against the walls and the dryer thats next to it. Its also very loud and it used to be super quiet...


try putting a lighter load in the washer,or you put some foam or something like that at each side of the machine to stop it hitting against the other things next to it.also try adjusting the feet at the bottom of the machine to level it out.

TERRIBLE NOISE ON SPIN CYCLE


That is normal, after a little while all washers make that horrible noise you should be able to put up with it
